Well, why wouldn't it? I mean, the country's being run by the most selfish people that exist in the 50 states, people who are literally strip-mining the populace of its will to be reasonable. Global warming is hotly (yes, you may smack me for the pun) contended. Corruption flourishes in almost every state government. Gas costs a million dollars and citrus fruit is getting really expensive.
Is there nothing that can cheer us up?
Of course there is! In the words of one of the commenters on Cute Overload:
